New Year, New Mantras

good British design

These are my favorite Christmas gifts this year.  Double great advice for the New Year, wouldn’t you say?  Calm in the face of a storm, and grace under pressure, with my tongue firmly in-cheek.  Just good British design, old and new (and I love all things British).

Here’s to 2011!  Great beginnings and lots of hot beverages in fabulous cups.

  1. Thanks for the great comment on the New England Home blog! It brought me to your sight! I absolutely love the “Keep Calm and Carry On” mugs and have to ask you if you saw they have notepads and water bottles too now. I saw them at Paper Store and at Barnes and Noble. To the Brits!

    • Yay Brits! Thanks for visiting, Stacy! It’s great to meet you. I haven’t seen the notepads or water bottles yet. I’ll have to check them out. I also love the Keep Calm and Carry On area rugs from CB2. By the way, I’ve seen black venetian plaster in person, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. Venetian plaster has a luster and dimensional depth that keeps even a really dark color like black from feeling too heavy. Really nice. Hmmm, maybe black should be the new black?
